Biggest Week In Club’s History, Man City Set For UEFA Ban Appeal

Manchester City appeal against their two year ban from European competition is set to begin on Monday as it is believed to be the club’s biggest week in history.

City were found to have overstated sponsorship revenue and break-even information in accounts submitted to UEFA between 2012 and 2016.

Man City have hired a group of high-profile lawyers to represent them at the CAS hearing. Their legal team is led by David Pannick QC of Blackstone Chambers and Paul Harris QC of Monckton Chambers.

City will miss out on the prestige of playing in the Champions League for the next two seasons and estimated revenues of £200m unless they convince three judges in the three-day video conference hearing that they have not broken UEFA's financial fair play (FFP) rules.

If City's ban is confirmed by CAS, the team who finishes fifth this season - currently Manchester United - will qualify for the Champions League.
